While appearing on the The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Wednesday night, 2017 ACM Awards co-hosts Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley went big and performed country legend Merle Haggard‘s 1977 hit “Ramblin’ Fever.”
“We love Merle Haggard … He’s an icon,” Bentley explained before kicking off the classic tune. “Haggard was such a diverse — his sound was so diverse — a lot of saxophones in his music, and horn instruments, so we’re gonna combine our thing with y’all’s, with these guys, and see what happens.”

Great job. While on the show, Luke and Dierks also shared how they plan on getting through their hosting gig— with help from the full bar located backstage. They also fully encourage the ACM Awards audience to also participate in drinking while enjoying the show.
